I remember when I was in college, after my night class sometimes I’d go Caffe Firenzo to study or just enjoy my solitude and a good book. The place was convenient for me since it’s just a walking distance from our school. Not only that, I also loved the ambiance of the cafe, it’s quiet and I could stay as long as I want since they’re open 24/7. Those were the good old days…
Ali and I arrived first, so while waiting for the others, Ms. Kate talked something about Caffe Firenzo and its interior. We also went around to take some pictures.
There are tons of food selections and one of their specialties are the Native Chicken Fried Adobo and the Tuna Palikpik. I think my favorite dishes are the native chicken fried adobo and the chicken teriyaki. I’ve also tasted their chicken skin during my 2nd visit and I must say it tastes heavenly!
The Place: ★★★★★
The food was superb! Beyond amazing I must say. Everything was delicious especially Native Chicken Fried Adobo and Chicken Teriyaki.
The Price range: ★★★☆☆
The Services: ★★★★☆
The Comfort Room: ★★★★★

Genetically Engineered Salmon / GMO Salmon: A genetically modified salmon has just been declared by the United States regulators as safe for human consumption, however, environmental groups are up in arms due to the project’s shady approval.
The altered salmon specie will be the first “transgenic animal” to have ever been considered safe for use as food, in case it gets fully approved – legally.
At the moment, it is still unclear whether it will ever appear on an American dinner plate.
Several environmental groups such as EcoJustice, the Ecology Action Centre and Living Oceans are somewhat questioning the approval procedure used by the federal government over the commercial egg production of the modified salmon.
“The government wouldn’t even tell us what they were doing,” said Karen Wristen of B.C.-based Living Oceans.
The thought that we could approve the world’s first genetically modified food animal for commercial production in a modern parliamentary democracy without anyone even knowing is, to me, mind-boggling.
The GMO salmon will be ready for harvest in just the span of 18 months, contrary to the usual three years using conventional farming techniques.

When I was younger, I understood Patience in a strange way. I was taught to be patient by waiting when I don’t get what I want, remaining calm when things annoy me, controlling my emotions when situations get tough. But, growing up I realized that I never understood what patience really is. Patience is not simply…

To know everything legit about bipolar disorder, visit Buzzfeed’s article:
That world around you, all dark and hollow, without meaning or context, without hope, as dry as a desert. It holds you around its frosty hands, feeling thin, painful. Noise was dull, food was tasteless, days were long and nights, sleepless; home was horror and tomorrow seems unlikely.The first time, the sombre time, when you try to kill yourself, imagining how your funeral will be like, fantasizing about it in tremendous detail. (YOU DON’T REALLY WANT TO DIE. YOU JUST WANT TO GET AWAY. AND YOU’RE NOT THE LAST ONE.)
HOW I DEALT WITH IT

2. Support System
3. Environment & Lifestyle change
- Getting enough sleep is important. Sleeping 8-9 hours helped me stabilize my mood and boosts up my hormones.
- Avoid chocolates, sodas and other junk. I’m still having troubles with this but i’m trying. I’m trying little by little. Also, eat vegies and other bipolar friendly food, there tons of choices in google if you’re interested.
- Exercise can help too! It alleviates depression and balance your mood. It also increases attention and decision making. But now that i’m working it’s hard to exercise everyday, I barely have time but i’m doing the best that I can to find time.

Relaunching My First BookMy debut poetry collection, A Roomful of Machines, has a new and fortified edition. The book went out of print five years ago. Picked up by a Washingtonville, NY-based small press ELJ Publications, A Roomful of Machines is, more or less, the chatter–barely intelligible yet there–of the material world. I corralled this chatter and gave it what amounted to a lyrical treatment without really trying to make sense of the words that I was, one way or another, si […]

As a frequent traveler, I need clothes that do not only highlight my personal sense of style but also those that are also affordable, easy to wear, easy to pack and easy to clean. This is why I prefer resort wear clothes. Also called “easywear,” resort wear clothes are generally made from materials that are breathable and lightweight. Clothes that are made of soft, wrinkle-free fabric (so you can easily roll them and place inside your suitcase), that have pretty styles, colors and designs and that are casual yet very fashionable. These are the very reasons why I just love
